In this original and thoroughly researched analysis, Bill Niven picks his way with admirable clarity through the tangled webs of spin and counter-spin, never claiming to attain a definitive narrative of what "really" happened, but also not shrinking from some robust censure of overt distortion or partisanship. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT (A) very well-researched work of great insight and sophistication, a fine piece of scholarship that furthers our understanding of the way ideology was formed under Communism. CENTRAL EUROPEAN HISTORY This is a lucidly written and fascinating study which draws on a variety of sources (interviews, archive, literature, film). It is that rare thing, a truly scholarly book that addresses and deserves a wide audience. JOURNAL OF EUROPEAN STUDIES Insightful and provocative, The Buchenwald Child shows how the Buchenwald Child myth was constructed, deconstructed and reconstructed to fit the changes in politics and culture in post-World War II Germany. SIRREADALOT.ORG Zweig was persecuted as a "Jew" and rescued in Buchenwald as a "symbol of resistance" against Hitler. Both his persecution and rescue were used ideologically by the German Democratic Republic. Niven's study shows that Zweig was critical of the fact that the DDR used him, but that he simultaneously felt obligated to the memory of his Communist rescuers. (.) Stefan Jerzy Zweig became an object of the collective German memory and obviously this burden was his undoing. HUMANITIES -- SOZIAL- UND KULTURGESCHICHTE Bill Niven traces the evolution of the story of the rescue of Stefan Jerzy Zweig, a four-year-old Jewish child imprisoned at Buchenwald. He follows the story in its transformation from a narrative that glorified the individual actions of the concentration camp inmates to one that legitimated the antifascist credentials of the East German state to its post-unification deconstruction... What is most unique and refreshing about this study, however, is that the author never loses sight of the impact these changing narratives had on the original victim ... who became "thrice a victim: first of the Nazis, then of the GDR's manipulation of his rescue, and now of united Germany's redefinition of it."
